A military judge trying the Fort Hood shootings case has adjourned the trial for the day after the soldier accused in the deadly 2009 rampage refused to put up a fight on Wednesday, resting his case without calling a single witness or testifying in his own defense.
A military judge has blocked several pieces of evidence that prosecutors said would help explain the motives of the soldier accused in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, but she has allowed several others, including Internet searches he made days before the attack about killing innocent women and children, fatwas and jihad.
The prosecutors pursuing the death penalty against the Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage will soon begin trying to answer a difficult but key question: Why did Maj. Nidal Hasan attack his fellow soldiers in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base?
The soldier on trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood was allowed to continue representing himself on Thursday after the judge barred his standby attorneys from taking over, despite their claims that the Army psychiatrist was trying to secure his own death sentence.
A military judge on Tuesday refused a three-month trial delay for the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.
A uniformed Army psychiatrist had no justification for gunning down U.S. troops and won't be allowed to tell jurors that he was protecting Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, a military judge ruled Friday, appearing to clear the way for the Fort Hood murder trial to begin.
Retired Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford says he will never forget locking eyes with the gunman who entered a Fort Hood building Nov. 5, 2009, then unleashed a burst of gunfire into a crowd of soldiers preparing for deployment.
A military judge ruled Monday that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan may represent himself in his trial for the 2009 Fort Hood shootings
The Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shooting rampage still faces the death penalty if convicted in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation, a judge ruled Wednesday.
But the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, said she won't hold it against him.
In December, during Col. Osborn's first pretrial hearing in the case, she told Maj. Hasan that she won't hold the beard against him but that military jurors might.
